Bovvy Booty

Despite my best endeavours, I still came away with a small pile of booty
From front to back, mostly picked up from the B&B or Battlegroup South charity stand.
  • Military vehicles in detail books for the M3 and Sdkfz 250 half tracks, useful pictures and diagrams for building variants on the standard models
  • Left more stowage from Sgts Mess - always useful
  • centre a trio of Matchbox sdkfz 251's - the one I am working on seem to have rather fragile tracks so some spares might be needed.
  • A sdkfz 250 - will probably be reworked as a DAK OP vehicle
  • Right more bits from SHQ tables and chairs and German and US staff - this should allow be to create some extra staff stands
  • Second row of assembled vehicles Armourfast M4A3 with 76mm -hopefully these will blend in with my Italeri versions
  • A couple of Gaz/Zis trucks - I'm in two minds how to use them, either as Civilian vehicles or as a Winter version.
  • Another truck with a Katyusha - A number of scenarios need a couple and I've only got one
  • More Armourfast Shermans, this time with 105mm guns - as above hopefully they will match with my Italeri versions
  • Finally some Valiant figures, they may be oversized, but they come with a reasonable array of weapons and will be used to modify the Plastic Soldier US infantry, especially as they are short of bazookas.

Excellent hall, sir. Bovvy brilliant place for a w/e. I don't think you'll have problems with stuff fitting in. I mix and match from the same sources too.
